The grille is growing on me:



The rear screams Focus but it's totally sexy:



Awesome lights:



Handsome interior:




This thing will sell...

Am I the only one who thinks the grill looks straight out of "Batman"?

Nope!

i agree with what Mitch said. It screams focus!!

I don't care for the center of the dash and how they did the electronics. If the price is cheap enough then maybe, but honestly overall it doesn't do much for me.

now what was wrong the the other rear end? definitely ford booty

Have to agree that its rather similar to the focus back side.

But my current midsize segment vote has to go to Mazda 3 and its skyactive 2.0 Real world mpg figures best Hyundai's and has more power.

I agree which is probably why we're both driving a GT. The Hyundai's interior has always appealed more to me than Kia's. My problem is that Kia gets all the exterior goodies like LED headlights/taillights.

Overall I do like the look of this and think its a nice package.

Love it. Now... if it only came with a 2.4L GDI and 6-spd manual option....

Actually the 2.0 GDI in the upcoming Forte EX has more power. Don't know about the MPG though.

True, but alas, Hyundai's/Kia's mpg real world figures have not been as close to rated as the Mazda skyactive. With total real average in Mazda's favor.

Additionally, I hate to say it but part of me also wonders if Hyundai may be tryin a numbers game with the power like before...."devil's advocate"
